    Hello, and welcome to BYC.

    As far as the breed of your chicks, that's going to be hard to judge for two reasons:
    1. Lots and lots of breeds of chickens look almost identical as chicks, best to wait until they have real feathers
    2. We can't judge what we can't see; pics are good. Refer to the photo guidelines for this section at the top of the forum thread list.

    What I suggest is that you look through this chicken breed chart for breeds starting with "s" that might be yours. Then you can post photos of your chicks once they are fully feathered and ask for confirmation of your guess.

    I love that chart :) Comes in handy.

    They don't list them all though. They missed Seremas

    That's kind of funny, as "Serama" is the first breed of chicken that came to my mind when I thought about breeds starting with "s"!

    If you want to figure out what breed of chicks you have, I would post some photos of them on this section of the forum. Some more exotic breeds beginning with "s" are:

    Sebright
    Serama
    Sultan
    Spanish
    Silkie

    Another breed of chicken (though very exotic and difficult to find) that begins with "s" is the Sumtaler.
